"Many birds and other wildlife die following an oil spill, but there are also 
other potential long-terms effects of oil exposure on animals. In a recent 
Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry study that examined blood samples from 
birds present in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 and 2011 following the Deepwater 
Horizon oil spill, even birds with small amounts of oil present on their 
feathers experienced problems related to their red blood cells."
